I am reading "Stillmeadow and Sugarbridge" right now, and I love the letters she and Barbara wrote back and forth. What a wonderful friendship. You don't find that much these days. I would love to know more about Gladys and Stillmeadow, and any family she has still around, if anyone has any information or additional websites. I also would love to read some of her magazines articles, "The Diary of Domesticity" and "Butternut Wisdom" if anyone knows where I can find copies of those. Blessings to all my fellow Gladys fans!

Comments:i had just ordered "Stillmeadow Calendar' from Amazon, when i realized I had first read Gladys Taber's column in The Family Circle Magazine in 1963 or 1964. My mother would bring the magazine home from her shopping expeditions and the Gladys Taber column was the first one we would turn to. Well, that's over 48 years I have been reading her books about Stillmeadow, Stillcove and of course all her wonderful dogs and cats. Now that my brother and sister in law have moved to Connecticut, a trip to Stillmeadow is on our calendar.

I don't have any pets though, but three favorite books otherwise would be a good start for me. I love to read and could use a good elder woman mentor. It sounds as though Gladys' work and influence is still very much alive. Please respond. Thank you. Sincerely, Rhoda Tuckey

Comments:I remember my mom reading Gladys Taber's books when I was a child and talking about them. I bought her Stillmeadow Cookbook when a was a young woman, but it was lost with other books when I moved in 1979. Now I collect her books and read them often, especially when I want to feel more content and more peaceful. One thing, though--her description of her first love, Jan, who went to war and eventually broke her heart hurts me so much! Every September she seems to write something about that. When she describes her courtship with Frank, the man she married and later divorced, she never says anything about loving him. I always wonder what happened to "Jan"--whether she saw him around the town where they lived, or heard about him through the years. Also, I could feel her pain acutely when reading Another Path, about Jill's death, maybe because I was widowed when I was 43. Anyway, I love the way she faces life and her little quirks and her love for humankind and animals. I enjoy everything about the books--the illustrations and pictures, too. Does anyone know how to get in touch with Anne Colby, her granddaughter who at one time, at least, was at Stillmeadow? Can one write to someone who takes care of the place to get information about it?

Later I discovered "Butternut Wisdom" and "Diary of Domesticity" in FAMILY CIRCLE and Just discovered this site by typing in Gladys Taber and, oh my, the sites that popped up. I have all but 3 of her books and since those three are listed for hundreds of dollars I doubt I'll ever own them. Meanwhile, I reread her books each winter and enjoy them again as much as when I first read them. I have many duplicates I have picked up thru the years. There will never be anyone like this wonderful woman and I hope the group, FRIENDS OF GLADYS TABER, continues to grow.

Some I purchased through bookstores dealing in out-of-print books. Once in a while I will read, again, one of her books as I am doing now. It is titled, "Still Cove Journal"; the last one she wrote, I believe. I have also enjoyed reading books authored by two of her friends, Faith Baldwin and Hal Borland.

Comments:I have admired Gladys Taber's Stillmeadow writings since I was a young girl.My mother was an avid reader of Gladys' writings and I recently found a worn and torn "Stillmeadow" book of Gladys' with clippings of her writings cut out of magazines and folded neatly in the book. My mother was a writer in a less notable way but did publish some of her poems. As I read about Gladys' way of life, I find it parallel to my mother's, namely Violet Alice Evans Arneson now deceased. I enjoy both author's writings.

I like the way they packed up food to go on a picnic or maybe just sit outside and eat and enjoy the scenery and great outdoors. I have about 5 of her books and am now just reading them over. She sure had a way of writing and describing leaves, fires roaring, cooking whatever she was going to cook, even coddling eggs in the coddling cups. You can just imagine them enjoying them. It must have been very cold there in the wintertime the way she described it in her books.

Her husband Bob and Jill were communting to New York and just coming to Stillmeadow on weekends when Gladys wrote this book. It is more honest about the aggravations of coutnry living then the later (but so wonderful) books. It will be a revelation to you and it reveals a lot about Gladys' personality! I know that is always very costly when it comes up for auction on Ebay or Amazon, but belive me, it is woth scrimping and saving for!

Comments:As with so many of you, my Mother introduced me to Gladys Taber, and we read her books throughout the 60;s, 70's and mourned her loss in 1980. This morning I was reshelving some books and thought I ought to go back and reread them. When my Mother passed away, we had a lot of duplicates, so I combined them and offered the extras to a friend from Texas who was visiting. She jumped on the offer and flew home to Dallas with her suitcase full of books! When my son was small, and we lived in Westchester Co., N. Y., we used to travel frequently to New Britain to visit an old and dear friend, passing by Southbury. On an impulse one afternoon, I made the detour from I84 to Jeremy Swamp Rd. (which I had found several years earlier by noting "clues" from Stillmeadow books), and with my heart in my throat actually walked up Mrs. Taber's door, with my small son at my side. We were invited in, and spoke with her for a few minutes before continuing on our way home. What a thrill! Her beautiful books and wonderful outlook on life have served as an inspiration for me.

Comments:While shelving books at our local library, I happened to shelve a book next to Stillmeadow Calendar. Needless to say, I checked it out, renewed it and finally had to give it back to the library, doggone it! I had read all the Butternut Wisdom columns she wrote in Family Circle when my Mom would buy the magazine. As I read Stillmeadow Calendar, I realized all those columns I devoured, really were the basis for my values and the way I feel about things. My Mother always read those columns too, and perhaps she adopted that wonderful 'wisdom' in raising me. I know we shared the same views on things, so perhaps the three of us were of like minds and souls. At 65, I am now re-discovering a whole world of her books and can't wait for the discovery of more of her books. I have been able to recently purchase two of her books with a third on the way here to my home. In reading even the cookbook I have garnered, I feel peace enter and my busy day dissolve. We are so lucky to be able to read these wonderful books and have had the opportunity to live our lives through osmosis through Gladys' words. I hope her daughter realizes the gift her mother's words have given me, and I Thank her for sharing Gladys with us. It is in the largesse of this generosity that we become whole again. Thank you.

Comments:I can't remember when or where I "Stillmeadow Daybook", but something made me pick it up and thumb through it. I just knew that it was just what I needed at the time. I was in a band and on tour and it was the most perfect book for travelling all over the country. I really just wanted to fall into that book and live there especially considering just how opposite it was from what I was doing. On tour in a band can get really boring and exhausting so it was an escape from the boredom of waiting around to play. I remember going back to the van and reading but knowing that soon I would finish this book and then what???? It made me long to sit in front of a fireplace with a cat next to me, reading something cozy. I wish I would've been so lucky as to have met her as she seemed like such a wonderful, positive woman. But I'm glad she left us all her books. I plan owning all of them at some point.

I was going through a horrible divorce, having been married for 25 years to my highschool sweetheart. Her book for some strange reason gave me hope, peace and strenght to go on with the rest of my life alone. I have now collected and read many of her books and love each one. I am lucky to live near by her beloved Stillmeadow in Southbury and found her home. It looks exactly the same as when she lived there and was thrilled to find it one warm summer day back in 1995. I wish there were some way to get inside and see where she lived and loved, but so far I have not been able to do that. I read her books every week over and over they give me inspiration for everyday living.

How I loved them then, not knowing the later love for her books that would evolve. I am so pleased that there are still so many fans of her books, others who derive the same enjoyment and calming influence her writing has always invoked in me.

Comments:I fell in love with Stillmeadow and Gladys Taber's books and "Butternut Wisdom" column a long time ago and thought sadly that it was a dream lost when she passed away. Recently widowed after a 40-year marriage, I found the house that is truly my heart's home a year ago, purchased it the day after I first saw it and have been happily living in its shelter since. Today I came across these websites devoted to preserving her peaceful kingdom, including many photos of Stillmeadow. I could be looking at the twin of my home, also an antique Cape Cod, built, we think, in the 1790's within shouting distance of the Connecticut shoreline. Although I had seen photos in her books, first read in our town library 35 years ago, I had only a hazy memory of that delightful home. Now I know why my own piece of Heaven on earth spoke to me so strongly. How comforting to know that there are others who feel as deeply about her vision of the world as I and that we can make a difference in the often frantic hustle that life has become. I feel like I have come to a well of sweet cool water in the middle of a long dusty journey. Now I am going to hie myself out and order the copies of her books to go with "Stillmeadow Seasons" and "Stillmeadow Road" that have graced my bookshelves for these many years. Thank you for this opportunity to connect with like-minded souls!

We read her books and feel that all is right with the world. We are both curious, however, as to what happened to both her and Jill's husbands and Jill's children. Its driving us crazy that we cannot find mention of what happened to them in any of her books. I would really appreciate hearing something from you. Thank you so much! Melissa

Comments:Is it true that Gilly's gone? If so,I hope someone will pick up the mantle and continue to publish the newsletter. It was always such a pleasure to find one in the mail.....a tangible link to Gladys. Gilly was a wonderful, devoted friend of Gladys that will be sorely missed.

Comments:I'm currently reading Country Chronicle. This is the first book I've read by Gladys Taber and definately won't be the last. It doesn't take long to fall in love with her and her way of writing. Just wanted to say thank you for this website so we can learn more about this inspiring woman.

Comments:Discovered Gladys on the library shelf. I first enjoyed Still Cove Journal and continued to read the rest. I did belong to the Gilley Moore club but have lost contact. I understand she passed away. Would love to hear more about the fans of G.T.

Comments:Zucchini Jam Serves: 6 Ingredients: 6 cup zucchini; peeled & grated 1/4 cup water 1 pkg sure-jell 5 cup sugar 13 oz pineapple; crushed 6 oz apricot Jello Boil the zucchini and water until soft. Add Sure-Jell and bring to a hard boil. Add sugar and pineapple. Boil 5 minutes. Remove form heat. Add apricot Jello. Stir well. Pack in sterilized jars and seal. I use the Sure-Jell Light and use only 3 1/2 cups sugar. This is an orange colored jam and really tastes great...unless you don't like apricots or pineapple!

Comments:Gladys has been my favorite author for many, many years. I appreciate her storis, thoughts, and style of writing. She has been an inspiration throughout my life. I would appreciate any current information about friends of Gladys reunions and meetings. I hope to sometime soon visit Stillmeadow where all her creative writings were born.

Comments:I would be interested in learning more about the Friends of Gladys Taber organization. I am finally living in Orleans MA. I am sure you are aware of the fact that Still Cove is on the market. Are there any plans about aimed at possibly preserving it. I attended an historic commission session the other day and the structure was declared significant but they didn't go into any thoughts of a possible purchase in order to preserve it in tact. Could it possibly serve as a writers retreat center for this area? (just a suggestion) Any info you could send would be greatly appreciated.

Comments:15 years ago, I intended to "sign up" for the newsletter written by Gilly Moore for the "Friends of Gladys Taber". As things go, I never did. On a whim, tonight I discovered this web site and I am so delighted! Gladys Taber lives! Gilly, if you are reading this, I still have the kind letter you wrote to me when I inquired about the "Friends" many years ago! After all these years.... thank you!

She is now my favorite author just as she was my father's, and I own quite a collection of her wonderful books purchased from numerous sources. I am very interested in obtaining more of her works and those of her daughter. Anything I can here about her and her gifted writings would be indeed greatly appreciated.

Comments:My Mother got me interested in Gladys Taber's books some years ago. We eventually made around 3 trips to Connecticut, to try and find Stillmeadow. On our second trip there, we found the house and got permission to walk around in the yard. Got some pictures. On our next visit there, we drove by the house and saw a lady outside in the yard. We stopped and my Mother got out and went over to talk with her. It was Connie, Gladys' daughter. She invited us in to walk thru the first floor. It was a wonderful time, seeing inside the house that Gladys loved and wrote about in her books. We also found the cemetery where Gladys was buried, and also her friend Jill's grave. It was a day that meant so much to my Mother. It was also our last visit there together. My Mother had a stroke 3 months later. That was in 1998. In Dec. of 2003, just 3 days before Christmas, my Mom passed away. I will treasure all of our memories of being able to let Mom see the house that she read about in the books, knowing that it meant so much to her! I wish we could have met Gladys for she seemed like such a special person. I would love to have all of the books that she wrote, but they are difficult to find. I'm glad for this website. Thanks!

Comments:Always and ever Gladys has been a part of my life. My mother was a librarian and introduced me to the Stillmeadow books when I was in high school. In the late 1970's my sister and I drove to Stillmeadow and bravely walked around the farmhouse and peeked into the windows, one splendid, October morning. What a thrill! I passed along one of my Stillmeadow books to my daughter, Mary Jane, a midwife, who is now living in Virginia. She and her husband purchased a property in the countryside and are converting it into a farm which they have named "Steel Meadow Farm", because my son-in-law, Glenn, is an artist/sculptor who works in steel medium. Over the years, I have read Gladys' journals over and over and they always bring me enormous comfort.

Comments: This is a lovely website. You have added so many things! My collection of Gladys Taber's books is growing, and I enjoy reading about the peace and joy she had in the country. ANOTHER PATH helped me through grief. I am looking forward to the Friends of Gladys Taber newsletter this month if Gilbertine is feeling well. So far I have not been able to go to a Friends gathering, but some year I will go and meet some of you dear friends and learn more about Gladys and Stillmeadow/StillCove.
